London Printed for the Author, and sold by S. Hooper. G. Kearsley. S. Leacroft. J. Robson and Co. and J. Keating, Stratford upon Avon, 1777. Scarce first (and only) edition, dedicated to 'the accomplished Mrs. Lloyd, Relict of the late Worthy John Lloyd, Esq; of Snitterfield, near Stratford'. Aubin describes it as 'very strong in antiquities and has as chief attraction a pathetic tale of early English times' (p. 94).This is the only work by Jordan, self-appointed Shakespeare sage of the late eighteenth century, to be published in his lifetime. A wheelwright by trade, and keen amateur actor, Jordan was a popular tour guide in Stratford. As a man full of Shakespeare lore (he promoted, for example, the story of Shakespeare's mulberry tree), he cannot resist including the Bard here: 'Hence eastward, Warwick tow'rs attract the sight; / And westward, Stratford domes no less delight, / Chiefly that ancient solemn pile, whose stones / Have long enclos'd the much-lov'd Shakespear's bones' (pp. 33-4), with a footnote on the 'not inelegant monument' in the Church, 'with his bust to the waste [sic], and his face painted to imitate flesh-colour, according to the absurd taste of those times.' 4to (260 × 210 mm) in half-sheets, pp. 48; with a large engraved title vignette ('The West View of Welcombe Hills') and a subscribers' list on pp. [39]-48; title and final page darkened and marked, small hole to title, some neat restoration to the blank verso, final leaf sometime reinforced in the fore-margin, old dampstain in the gutter towards the end; modern quarter calf.

Philadelphia: Robert Bell, 1777. First American Edition; two volumes; bound in contemporary (original?) full calf; with raised bands; ?M? is blind-stamped on each spine, the number of each volume stamped below; the top edges of each board are decorated in a geometric pattern; some rubbing and stains of the bindings; small name stamp (19th century?) at the top of each title page; page foxing and staining; a very good set of a book rarely found complete and in original, unsophisticated condition. Milton, dead for over a century by the time of this publication, influenced the Founding Fathers, and while the text of his most famous work was widely available in imported editions, the printing of this work during the American Revolution was an acknowledgment of its significance.

PIGOT (Lord George).
London, Printed For T. Cadell, In the Strand, 1777. In-4° ; XIX-134 pp., demi-basane marron, dos lisse muet, rel. de l'époque, bon exemplaire. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. FIRST EDITION. VERY GOOD COPY. "This volume was designed to influence British public opinion in favor of the Nabob who was objecting to the violation of his suzerainty by the East India Company" (JFB Catalogue). George Pigot, Baron Pigot (1719- 1777) entered the Company's service in 1736, and became governor and commander-in-chief of Madras in 1755. In 1758-59 he defended Madras against the French, and occupied Pondicherry; in 1763 he returned to England where he became an Irish peer and obtained a seat in Parliament. In 1775 he returned to India to occupy his former position at Madras, but he was soon involved in a quarrel with the majority of his council over the proposed restoration of the Rajah of Tanjore, which Pigot strongly favored. He was arrested by order of the council, and died while still a prisoner on May 11, 1777. This book contains a detailed presentation of Pigot's point of view, and was published before new of his death reached England. In 1779 the matter was discussed in Parliament, and four of those responsible for Pigot's arrest were tried and fined £1000 each. Ancillary to this, James Macpherson, the Scot, at the time was agent to the Nabob of Arcot, on whose behalf he made several effective appeals to the public, and amongst others published Letters from Mahommed Au Chan, Nabob of Arcot, to the court of Directors.

Contemporary yellowish sprinkled boards with gilt spine labels, all volumes economically bound without free endpapers.. A uniform set with with all plates and appendices. Part 1 in the scarce second edition of 1786, first published ten years earlier and now enlarged by more than one third. Parts 2-3 and the appendices in first and only edition, 1777-83. Anquetil-Duperron (1731-1805) became an adventurer for the sake of ancient Indo-Iranian religion and philosophy. Returned from India, he published his first great work: Zend-Avesta, Ouvrage de Zoroastre, Paris 1771. It comprised the major books of Parsism in first European translation, actually the first of an Oriental sacred text other than the Bible. Anquetil was immediately accused of forgery by William Jones and John Richardson. In the following years he read seven large dissertations on the age and authenticity of the Avestan texts to the French Academy. His enlightened apologist Kleuker (1749-1827) not only rendered Anquetil's translations and studies carefully into German, but added linguistic researches of his own. Later on he translated the epoch-making first volumes of Jones's ,Asiatick Researches' as well as Paulinus's ,Systema Brahmanicum'. His work strongly promoted 19th century Indo-European studies in Germany. Geiger & Kuhn, Grundriß der iranischen Philologie II, p. 1 & 40 ff.; cf. Encyclopedia Iranica, s.v.

Original half calf over speckled boards. morocco label with gilt title on the spines.* Rare first and only German edition and the main work on mineralogy and palaeontology by Linnaeus. Linne attached great importance to crystal structure for classification and thus was one of the pioneers in crystallographie. More important were his contributions to palaontology and historial geology: he described many fossils, including trilobites (Entomolithus), which he correctly placed among the arthropods... (DSB). Hoover Collection 542: 'Linnaeus achieved worldwide influence mainly through his pioneer work in systemizing botany but he also applied his passion for the arrangement to the animal and mineral kingdoms. In these mineral studies he describes many fossils and expounds his views on the age of the world, being careful not to upset the ecclesiastical orthodoxy of his time'.. Pictorial bookplate of Birger Strandell and small inoffensive handstamp of former owner on title pages. The Strandell provenance is quite interesting: The Hunt Library of Botanical Documentation in Pittsburgh, PA holds the Dr. Birger Strandell Collection which includes all published works by Linnaeus, in almost every known edition and translation as well as many of those by his many students, and much of the world's literature about Linnaeus and his students.
